CINEMATIC HORROR ICONS COME TO LIFE IN ALL-NEW “UNIVERSAL MONSTERS” MAZES AT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS’ “HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS”
As the fall seasons looms closer and closer. News regarding one of our favorite events of the year slowly starts to trickle out just like the blood seeping from the puncture wounds on your neck. Clearly with that sort of talk, we are talking about Universal Monsters! One of the best mazes in HHN history (in our opinion), Universal Monsters returns to HHN in Hollywood and makes its scary debut at Universal Orlando Resort. Both mazes/houses will be a unique interpretation of the monsters themselves. Here in Hollywood, we are getting a Frankenstein Meets Wolfman theme and UOR is getting the traditional Universal Monsters. Now that this theme is going to be on both coasts, it will be interesting to see how each is approached in style, maze design, scenic design and most important…the scares! Below you will find all the tasty details regarding this years event and this exciting announcement! Are you excited to come face to face with the Universal Monsters?
Universal Pictures’ Legendary Monsters Return to Wreak Havoc at Universal Studios Hollywood and Make Frightening Debut at Universal Orlando Resort
“Universal Monsters” will come to life in all-new terrifying Halloween Horror Nights mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, inspired by Universal’s original cinematic monsters and the movie studio that invented the horror films. The terrifying experiences on both coasts will wake some of the most frightening and legendary monsters in horror history and bring them face-to-face with guests at the nation’s premier Halloween events.
On the heels of last year’s successful “Universal Monsters” experience, Universal Studios Hollywood will introduce an all-new horrifying maze, “Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man,” that delves deeper into the Universal Monsters’ lore.
Loosely based on Universal’s 1943 horror movie of the same name, this reimagined tale for the 21st century takes guests on a terrifying journey that bears witness to a deadly confrontation between these two horror icons and the epic battle that rages between them. Guests will follow in the footsteps of the Frankenstein Monster, lured by exotic music towards a nearby gypsy camp while desperately seeking sanctuary from a mob of angry villagers determined to destroy him. It is within the gypsy encampment that the Frankenstein Monster meets The Wolf Man and where the madness begins as guests are led along a path of destruction through the murky Moors, to a creepy cemetery and into the smoldering ruins of Castle Frankenstein and its icy cellars beneath.
Once again, GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, SLASH, long hailed as one of the best electric guitar-players of all time, will collaborate with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the maze.

At Universal Orlando Resort, guests will be hunted by every single grisly monster from the anthology, including Dracula, The Wolf Man and Frankenstein, in the all-new experience, “Universal Monsters.”
Each sinister environment will bleed from one to the next as guests press through the darkened realms of horrifying creatures. Guests will face bloody terrors in Dracula’s castle and flee from what is behind the cryptic howls of the grim forest. They’ll run from the horrifying manmade monster within Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, and fall prey to an ancient Egyptian curse as they are pursued by the evil Mummy. Guests will try to escape the mysterious Creature lurking in the Black Lagoon, or become victims of other horrors waiting in the shadows.
